The Tenth Annual Common Ground Edible Garden Tour will happen Saturday, July 8, from 10am to 3pm and will start at Common Ground Garden (687 Arastradero Rd., Palo Alto). More details about the tour are listed below.
What is it?
The Edible Garden Tour is Common Ground Garden’s main fundraiser. All proceeds from ticket sales go to support our programs, which include: running the sustainable demonstration garden, youth education, adult volunteering and education, and donating fresh vegetables each week to local food closets.
Your ticket purchase gives you access to a map of participating gardens, featuring not-to-be-missed highlights: mini-orchards, grey water catchment systems, gardening demos, a bounty of berry varieties, native plants, medicinal herbs, ancient grains, and–of course–lovely gardens teeming with veggies!
Start your tour by visiting Common Ground Garden, and take advantage of the free garden snacks, drinks, tables from local organizations, and a raffle with many incredible prizes. Rediscover the delights of small, local gardens in your community. Soak up new water-saving, green-thumb gardening tips. Connect and share ideas with other gardeners.
To make the tour accessible to the whole community we have tiered pricing for tickets (including options for a smaller or larger donation to Common Ground Garden).
We also offer discounts for groups of 5 or more.
Gardens will be focused near Palo Alto (including East Palo Alto, Los Altos, Mountain View, and Menlo Park. Each city will feature at least one local community-oriented garden.
